OXFORDSHIRE’S Ben Charlesworth is hoping England can bounce back when they face Bangladesh in their sixth match of the Tri-Nation Under 19s Tournament today.

The Young Lions sit bottom of the table after one victory from four games.

England take on Bangladesh at Billericay bidding to avenge Sunday’s seven-wicket defeat in Cheltenham.

Former St Edward’s School pupil Charlesworth scored 68 runs in the loss and is hoping the side can show the same form which saw them beat India by five wickets last Friday.

He told Gloucestershire Cricket: “I think as a team we're improving every week.

“We beat India, we haven't beaten them on home soil for something like 14 years, so I think this side can go on and do really good things.

“I'm hoping we can win the next couple of games and get back into the tournament.”

A hand injury kept opener Charlesworth out of the first couple of matches, but he has since hit two half-centuries on his return to the side.

He added: “It's been quite a frustrating last couple of weeks, obviously with this little injury I picked up in my hand.

“I was buzzing to get out there and play (at Cheltenham), so I'm just happy I can contribute to the team.”
